Inaugural Victory for Chevron GR8 GT at Brands Hatch
The GT Cup Championship Sprint, which lasts 25 minutes, and GT Trophy Endurance Series races are designed for GT Cars with both up-and-coming racers, like Jordan, and “gentleman drivers,” like his father, David Witt, who was racing alongside his son at Brands Hatch in the Chevron Challenge Car.
“It was a really good race weekend and went really, really well. I couldn’t ask for much more from our first race in the GT Cup. It was great fun to race in, the car was fantastic and we got a brilliant result. It had been raining in free practice and we knew the car was quick against the leading Porsches and Ferraris, so I’d been praying for rain, and we got it. The first race was dry and a bit mad. I was expecting a steady start, and no contact for my first time out on the Pirelli slicks. However I was hit up the back on the first corner of the first race by a Ferrari, who went up and over my back end, damaging the car badly, which slowed me down a fair bit. But I still managed to bring the GR8 home in 7th place,” Jordan talks about his weekend.
“Jordan did fantastically and we are delighted with the result – he didn’t just win, he hammered everyone! And the wetter it got, the better the GR8’s got. After the first race damage, Andy and the Chevron team did really well to get Jordan’s car repaired and out for race two, with just 10 minutes to spare and Jordan won using his race craft,“ his proud father, David, added.
